November 2009 Edition.


November 2009 edition

As we approach a decade and a half of ANC rule in South Africa the vendetta campaign against White South Africans seems to be intensifying.

There are many who claim that the situation in South Africa is nowhere near as bad as it is in ZANU-PF controlled Zimbabwe, but the facts indicate differently - indeed the complete opposite seems to be the case. A total of 11 White farmers were murdered in Zimbabwe during Mugabe's land-grabbing pogroms, and all the world - quite rightly - sat up, took note and condemned. There have however now been a total of 3008 (the latest authenticated figure) farm murders in South Africa since the ANC were handed control, and yet there is hardly any publicity given to this quasi-genocide campaign in the outside world. Likewise when Roy Bennett, the MDC Deputy Agriculture Minister in the fragile Zimbabwe "Unity" Government, was arrested on a trumped-up charge there was massive worldwide media coverage and criticism, yet when a prominent South African critic of the ANC government is similarly arrested on a trumped-up charge no publicity is given to this draconian act in the mainstream overseas media.

The critic in question goes under the pseudonym of "The Uhuru Guru" and previously ran the "South Africa Sucks" web-site, which was probably well known to many of our readers. "The Uhuru Guru" has received criticisms in the past for the graphic nature of his web-site and some of his associations, but the fact remains that he provided an excellent on-line service by publicising to the world the true state of rampant crime, government corruption and breakdown of society in the "new" South Africa - and that the rights of free speech should be fundamental in any democratic country. The unspecified charges against "The Uhuru Guru" allegedly date back all the way to 1993, and yet in spite of not being informed of the nature of his alleged offence he had his door ripped open at 6 o'clock in the morning, his wife and young daughters terrorised by the police action, his family's mobile 'phones and computer equipment confiscated, and was locked up in a cell at a police station with about a dozen Black criminals. There seems little doubt, however, that his arrest was ordered by high-ranking officials of the ANC regime because his "South Africa Sucks" web-site was proving increasingly effective, and therefore embarrassing for South Africa's current masters.

But it is not only within the boundaries of South Africa itself that the ANC regime's anti-White victimisation campaign is intensifying. Since the ANC were handed power in 1994 a total of 604 mainly White South Africans have been granted refugee status throughout the West. These have mainly gone unnoticed, but earlier this year a 31-year-old White South African from the Mowbray area of Cape Town, Brandon Huntley, sought and was granted refugee status in Canada. This case gained much international media attention however, mainly because Mr. Huntley had based his application on the fact that he was the constant victim of crime in the "new" South Africa simply because of his race - he having been mugged on seven separate occasions by gangs of Black attackers (and there is no reason to doubt the veracity of this claim). On hearing the positive result of the Canadian court the ANC government went hysterical, putting diplomatic pressure on the Canadian authorities to reverse the decision. Regrettably the Canadian Immigration Minister, Jason Kenney, seems to have been intimidated by this "new" South African pressure, and has ordered the country's Federal Court to review the case. Brandon Huntley's legal team are fighting however, though at the time of writing we do not know the result of this review.

One has to ask the question, however, why it is that the ANC government seems so keen to have Brandon Huntley expelled back to South Africa when their entire ideology ("One Settler, One Bullet" and "Bring me my Machine-Gun") is based upon anti-White hatred. The only explanation is that they are so lacking in common human decency that they wish to humiliate and victimise as many Whites as possible, not only in South Africa itself but throughout the world.

Our movement has steadfastly advocated ever since the ANC obtained power that all Whites should leave South Africa as soon as they could and by whatever means possible. This is what Brandon Huntley has now done in order to safeguard the safety and well-being of himself and his family. We therefore salute his courage and tenacity. Both he and "The Uhuru Guru" in their respective ways are struggling bravely to expose and to counteract ANC oppression. They are struggles which all freedom-loving people around the world must support. When South Africa eventually emerges from the ANC nightmare they will both be recognised as true South African heroes.


At the end of October members of the Springbok Club/ELC enjoyed a most enthralling "Pirates of the London Docks" walking tour of the north Thames docks area conducted by Dr. John Pope-de Locksley. The organisation plans to stage other similar conducted tours next year.



Details of the forthcoming Springbok Club/ELC UDI Day celebration buffet are as follows :-

Guest Speaker :   Mr. MARK PILBEAM

Date :  Saturday 14th November 2009

Time :  assemble from 14.00 hrs onwards, meeting to commence at 15.00 hrs.

Venue: THE ANTELOPE (the upstairs function room) 22 Eaton Terrace, Belgravia, London SW1W 8EZ  (nearest tube station: Sloane Square - turn right out of the main entrance, then right into the north side of Sloane Square which becomes Cliveden Place, then finally left into Eaton Terrace where The Antelope is on the left).

Mark Pilbeam served as a Senior Trooper in the Rhodesian Light Infantry from 1977 to 1979. The RLI was a parachute regiment respected around the world which honed the art of "Fireforce" to its ultimate deadly perfection during the Rhodesian Bush War.

Mark is now the Chairman of the UK Branch of the RLI Regimental Association, a worldwide organisation of ex-servicemen who served in the regiment, which was re-formed in 2008. He is also a teacher of law and politics at the North Warwickshire and Hinckley College. In his talk he will tell the story of the Bush War through his own personal introspection, as well as commenting upon its consequences and aftermath. He will also tell the story of how the "Troopie" bronze statue honouring those RLI members who made the supreme sacrifice during the Bush War was smuggled out of ZANU-PF Zimbabwe, first to South Africa and eventually to the UK, and its continuing relevance to the men and women who served in Rhodesia. (The Springbok Club of course staged a visit to view the "Troopie" statue in order to pay their respects when it was housed at the British Empire & Commonwealth Museum in Bristol in 2001.)

A sumptuous array of buffet snacks will be provided at this gathering, and the costs will be £10.00 per head for Full Members of the Springbok Club, £14.00 per head for Associate Members, and £18.00 per head for non-members.



In December the Springbok Club/ELC will be holding their annual Day of the Vow commemorations, at which it is hoped a prominent British politician will be guest of honour.

The Springbok Club/ELC is also planning to stage a get-together in London for a TV viewing of one of the forthcoming South Africa v. England One Day Internationals.

The 2010 Springbok Club/ELC AGM will be held in January 2010. More precise details about all these activities will be detailed in future editions of the SCN.



The Kent Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC is planning to hold an informal get-together in Canterbury during the next few months. Full details will be announced in a future edition of the SCN.

The London Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC is planning two events early next year. One will involve a trip to the RAF Museum in Hendon, and the other will comprise an informal talk by an expert in Anglo-Saxon archaeology. Again more precise details will be given in future editions of the SCN.

It is hoped to launch a Co.Durham Branch of the Springbok Club/ELC in the City of Durham on Saturday 28th November. All members and supporters in Co.Durham will be informed of the precise details in due course. All those interested should 'phone: 07711188430.



The Swinton Circle held a very successful meeting last month at which they welcomed two prominent guest speakers, Mr. Michael McGough of the Freedom Association and Mr. Bob Vinnicombe, a visiting leading official of the Australian One Nation party. This was the first meeting staged solely under the auspices of the Swinton Circle since the infiltration problems which plagued the organisation last year, and proved that in spite of the efforts of the enemies of our movement this important wing has not only survived but has indeed prospered.

On Thursday 3rd December the Swinton Circle will be holding a most important meeting to be addressed by a prominent official from Gibraltar. Full details of this event will be circulated towards the end of November.

The campaigning side of the Swinton Circle has intensified during the past month with the launch of a campaign advocating that One Mile races should be included in the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games. Full details of all campaigns currently being conducted by the Swinton Circle can be found on the "Policy Campaigns" page of the Swinton Circle web-site, which can be accessed at :-



We have recently received this most encouraging report from the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force ( :-

ZNSPCA are pleased to inform the international community that the ten wild elephants captured by Basil Steyn for commercial purposes are scheduled for release.

ZNSPCA would like to thank the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources, the Attorney General’s office, officials from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority for their integral role in the release of these abused elephants. We are proud of our Ministry’s recognition of animal cruelty and the prevention of such acts.

Furthermore, ZNSPCA extends its gratitude to elephant specialists Karen Trendler and Dr. Lucy Bates whose reports clearly indicated that these elephants had been subjected to cruelty. We acknowledge the role of Dr. A. Dube (BVSc Zim) who carried out the veterinary inspection of the elephants. These specialists’ opinions, and the ZNSPCA Inspectorate reports have paved the way for a brighter future for these elephants. 

This cruel capture resulted in ZNSPCA having numerous meetings with National Parks and it has been agreed that Parks will organise workshops with relevant stakeholders in order to address loopholes and prevent such incidents re-occurring in the Country. Controls and codes of conduct for the management of the remaining wild elephants in captivity will also be put in place. ZNSPCA commends National Parks on this positive move.

Chief Inspector, ZNSPCA



We recently received the following interesting report from a pro-Falkland Islands circulation list :-

"This morning Clarin [an Argentine newspaper] reported the appointment of the new Governor of the Falklands - Mr. Nigel Haywood - who will take office in September. The Clarin report is factual and is largely based on Mercopress - which has a good article about him. Clarin concentrates on his experience as consul-general in Basra cooperating with Britain's armed forces, and quotes him looking forward to do the same with Britain's armed forces in the Falklands. It also makes the point that he is informed about post-war tourism and biodiversity. It also mentions his military background, earlier postings and family."



The Rhodesian Light Infantry Regimental Association in the UK (part of the world-wide RLI Regimental Association) has recently had a series of films on a single DVD created which tell the story of the Rhodesian Bush War, as seen through the eyes of the men who fought in it. This is a new set of films which are not in anyway related to those that have been around for a number of years, and the proceeds are to be used to maintain our Troopie statue, smuggled out of Zimbabwe, as well as the creation and maintenance of an RLI museum.

For more details about how to order this DVD please contact Mark Pilbeam at:

We have recently received the following most poignant message from the Flame Lily Foundation of South Africa ( reminding us all about an earlier but similar act of terrorism to that enacted over Lockerbie :-

Much has been said and written recently regarding the release from a Scottish prison of convicted terrorist Abdelbaset al Megrahi. Pan Am flight 103 exploded in the sky above Lockerbie shortly after taking off from Heathrow on 21 December 1988, killing all 259 passengers and crew and 11 innocent people on the ground.

World leaders were silent when, ten years earlier on 3 September 1978, an unarmed Air Rhodesia civilian airliner, Viscount VP-WAS (named Hunyani), in flight from Kariba to Salisbury was shot down by a gang of ZIPRA terrorists using a Russian SAM 7 missile. Of the 56 men, women and children on board, 38 perished in the crash landing. 10 survivors, including wounded woman and children, were then murdered on the ground by another gang of ZIPRA terrorists. This event must stand as one of the most terrible acts of terrorism in modern times, along with the Lockerbie disaster and the events of 9/11 2001.

A detailed report on the downing of the Hunyani can be found on the Internet at An extract of the sermon delivered at the memorial service for those who lost their lives is reproduced below as a reminder of the dreadful event that took place 31 years ago.


The Silence is Deafening
Sermon by Very Rev. John da Costa, Anglican Dean of Salisbury

Clergymen, I am frequently told, should keep out of politics. I thoroughly agree. For this reason, I will not allow politics to be preached in this cathedral. Clergy have to be reconcilers. That is no easy job. A minister of religion who has well-known political views, and allows them to come to the fore, cannot reconcile, but will alienate others, and fail in the chief part of his ministry.

My own ministry began in Ghana, where Kwame Nkrumah preached: "Seek ye first the political kingdom and all these things will be added to you." We know what became of Nkrumah. We are not to preach a political kingdom, but the kingdom of God.

Clergy are usually in the middle, shot at from both sides. It is not an enviable role. Yet times come when it is necessary to speak out, and in direct and forthright terms, like trumpets with unmistakable notes. I believe that this is one such time.

Nobody who holds sacred the dignity of human life can be anything but sickened at the events attending the crash of the Viscount Hunyani.  Survivors have the greatest call on the sympathy and assistance of every other human being. The horror of the crash was bad enough, but that this should have been compounded by murder of the most savage and treacherous sort leaves us stunned with disbelief and brings revulsion in the minds of anyone deserving the name "human."

This bestiality, worse than anything in recent history, stinks in the nostrils of Heaven. But are we deafened with the voice of protest from nations which call themselves "civilised"? We are not. Like men in the story of the Good Samaritan, they "pass by, on the other side."

One listens for loud condemnation by Dr. David Owen, himself a medical doctor, trained to extend mercy and help to all in need.

One listens and the silence is deafening.

One listens for loud condemnation by the President of the United States, himself a man from the Bible-Baptist belt, and again the silence is deafening.

One listens for loud condemnation by the Pope, by the Chief Rabbi, by the Archbishop of Canterbury, by all who love the name of God.

Again the silence is deafening.

Who is to be blamed for this ghastly episode?

First, those who fired the guns. Who were they? Youths and men who, as likely as not, were until recently in church schools. This is the first terrible fact. Men who went over to the other side in a few months were so indoctrinated that all they had previously learned was obliterated.  How could this happen if they had been given a truly Christian education?

Who else is to be blamed?

The United Nations and their church equivalent, the WCC. I am sure they both bear blame in this. Each parade a pseudo-morality which, like all half-truths, is more dangerous than the lie direct. From the safety and comfort of New York and Geneva, high moral attitudes can safely be struck. For us in the sweat, the blood, the suffering, it is somewhat different.

Who else? The churches? Oh yes, I fear so.

For too long, too many people have been allowed to call themselves "believers" when they have been nothing of the kind. Those who believe must act. If you believe the car is going to crash, you attempt to get out. If you believe the house is on fire, you try to get help and move things quickly. If you believe a child has drunk poison, you rush him to the doctor. Belief must bring about action.

Yet churches, even in our own dangerous times, are more than half-empty all the time. We are surrounded by heathens who equate belief in God with the Western way of life. In many war areas, Africans are told to "burn their Bibles". If this call was made to us, what sort of Bibles would be handed in? Would they be dog-eared from constant use; well-thumbed and marked? Would they be pristine in their virgin loveliness, in the same box in which they were first received?

There are tens of millions of all races who call themselves believers, who never enter any house of prayer and praise. Many are folk who scream loudest against communism, yet do not themselves help to defeat these Satanic forces by means of prayer, and praise and religious witness.

For, make no mistake, if our witness were as it ought to be, men would flock to join our ranks. As it is, we are by-passed by the world, as if irrelevant.

Is anyone else to be blamed for this ghastly episode near Kariba? I think so.

Politicians throughout the world have made opportunist speeches from time to time. These add to the heap of blameworthiness, for a speech can cause wounds which may take years to heal.

The ghastliness of this ill-fated flight from Kariba will be burned upon our memories for years to come. For others, far from our borders, it is an intellectual matter, not one which affects them deeply. Here is the tragedy!

The especial danger of Marxism is its teaching that human life is cheap, expendable, of less importance than the well-being of the State. But there are men who call themselves Christians who have the same contempt for other human beings, and who treat them as being expendable.

I have nothing but sympathy with those who are here today and whose grief we share. I have nothing but revulsion for the less-than-human act of murder which has so horrified us all.

I have nothing but amazement at the silence of so many of the political leaders of the world. I have nothing but sadness that our churches have failed so badly to practise what we preach. May God forgive us all, and may he bring all those who died so suddenly and unprepared into the light of His glorious presence.

No.132 :  Mr. MIKE NICHOLSON of Durban.

Mike Nicholson worked for the Unilever company in Durban during the late 1970s. His parents were strong supporters of the United Party of Jan Smuts, and he became a staunch supporter of the UP's successor, the New Republic Party. He was also an outstanding league hockey player and a keen and skilled snooker player. A number of old colleagues would like to know what became of him.



We have recently been alerted to a very interesting web-site called "Patriotic Poll". It can be accessed at :-





A prominent building firm in Cape Town is about to bite the dust as a result of black verneukery.

The contract was for several million, but shortly after the tenders had been opened, the successful tenderer (White) was told that he had to go into partnership with a second (Black) builder, as well as form an association with COSATU, the Black trade union body, as there were two hundred Blacks on his staff. The White builder began to have his doubts, but decided to sign the contract. In due course a certificate was prepared for two million Rand. This was awarded, not to the White builder but to the Black. The latter saw no necessity to notify his White colleague thereof, but paid the entire amount into his own bank account instead of that of the White builder, who had of course single handedly financed the undertaking. But when the White builder advised the PWD that he now had no option but to go into liquidation, he was immediately told he could not do this without the consent of his "partner "and the Trades Union Congress! Such consent was not of course forthcoming. He has given the Public Works Department notice that he is now winding up his business. He was told that he could not do this either, but of course he has no alternative.

This is one of the inevitable results of MacMillan's Winds of Change speech. He cheerfully consigned South African Whites to wholesale victimisation in order to preserve his "democratic" image. A large amount of the blame must also be laid at the doors of those Whites who put the interests of the Blacks before that of their own White fellow countrymen.

The trade unions, led by COSATU, are exploiting the government's commitment to the 2010 Soccer World Cup by demanding wage increases in just about every industry. On top of this, taxi associations are threatening to bring the urban areas to a standstill if they don't get their pound of flesh too. Township unrest on lack of service delivery is also fanning the fires of discontent, so the next few months are going to really test the government's ability to cope with the situation.

Can you believe this government of ours? They fire all the doctors in South Africa for striking, but the labour court says they cannot make 1500 bus drivers redundant because the bus company has gone broke. So now the ratepayers will pay them for the 4 months they say it will take to get the service running again. The best is, in the beginning, Durban's local government sold the bus service to a private company, Remant Alton, as they said that under the new Constitution, it was unlawful for the state to own public transport.

They sold it for R70 million, but then within 1.5 years lent the owner R30 million, for operating costs. In effect, after the loans, he had only paid R40 million. He then declared bankruptcy and they bought the company back, which was by now absolutely useless, for R450 million, using ratepayers money.

The interesting thing is, that they buy it back, but according to themselves this is illegal. Now comes the good bit; with R410 million profit in his pocket, the local government hand over the running of the bus service back to him! It now has come to light that he should never have been able to buy it in the first place as he has been convicted of fraud. "Which nobody knew about." Now the ratepayers of Durban have to walk around on filthy, crime ridden streets with names that nobody knows or can even pronounce while our city manager, Mike Sutcliffe, drives around with bodyguards and goes home, to his flat (valued at more than R1 million) at the Point waterfront, with wonderful clean streets, which by the way has been declared a rates free zone till 2014.

Yours etc.,

S.A.H., Durban



Most readers will undoubtedly recall how the SCN previously gave good publicity to a small political party called "New Britain", run by Mr. Dennis Delderfield.

We received some criticism for so doing as Mr. Delderfield was very much of a one-man-band, and his "New Britain" party had got absolutely nowhere in spite of almost 40 years of existence. We rejected these criticisms however, not only because we very much liked and admired Mr. Delderfield personally, but also because - small though it was - New Britain's "Commonwealth not Common Market" philosophy was far closer to our own ideology than that of any other British political party.

Initially our faith in Mr. Delderfield seemed well-founder. He remained loyal to the official Swinton Circle (of which he was a member) at the time of the crisis which engulfed the organisation last year, and indeed performed the invaluable task of acting as temporary Chairman during the EGM of 17th January 2009. Suddenly however, shortly after this, he inexplicably contacted us and asked us to stop advertising his events! No specific reason was given for this hurtful request, but it appeared that he had chosen to change sides and to back the breakaway rebels.

Confirmation of this came recently when we were forwarded a leaflet advertising a meeting which Delderfield was organising. This not only involved his own "New Britain" and the same breakaway Swinton Circle traitors, but also "The Flag" newspaper published by the notorious Ian Anderson. Anderscum, of course, was one of the uninvited and unwelcome attendees who caused trouble at the problematic Swinton Circle meeting of 22nd July 2008, has been exposed as a former Chairman of the far-right National Front, and is rumoured to be a leading power-behind-the-scenes in the neo-fascist BNP. Ironically, moreover, Delderfield himself attacked Anderscum fiercely and exposed his political extremism a few years ago in his "New Britain" magazine.

So what has caused Delderfield's sudden volte-face? Alas we haven't got a clue - but one thing is for certain, and that is that by his recent betrayal of friends and his decision to change sides in order to support the same most undesirable elements which he previously so forthrightly opposed, he has put to naught all his efforts and achievements of 40 years of political endeavour.
